As Europe is going through an unprecedented financial and economic crisis,
the oil and gas industry continues to face an uncertain business environment.
Another recession could lead to reduced demand and further increase the
pressure on margins in downstream operations. This has suppliers and buyers
looking to exploit any operational efficiency they can.
Terminal operators play a critical role in helping suppliers and buyers achieve
those efficiencies, and can benefit their own operations while doing so. To gain
a competitive edge, terminal operators need to be mindful of the big trends
in the industry and make sure that their Terminal Automation System (TAS)
is capable of supporting state-of-the-art supply management systems that
suppliers intend to use in order to maximize their efficiency. And for most TAS,
a simple configuration change is all it takes to achieve this.
